You can use a virtual hard disk with a live linux iso (persistent) invited?

If I format a virtual hard drive with gparted and then mount it, it becomes impossible to restart the client. Attempt to restart blocks upward with a blank screen, as if it does not find the bootable media.

Restart fails even after specifying the CD drive as a boot device in the BIOS as described here:

OK, everything works with the boot order in the BIOS set CD-ROM at the top.  I have to use the screen to reset the BIOS incorrectly. Thanks for the help.

  • You can use an external hard drive with the Mac Mini?

    I've seen videos that say that we cannot increase the ram on a min of Mac, but I'm curious if this works like an ordinary computer, if we can attach an external hard drive to store some of the memory to free up space. Sorry if this is something stupid just need to know what I can do with it.

    You can use an external hard drive to boot and run with any Mac. Its not going to improve or replace your ram. If you use a mechanical hard drive in any Mac then help and boot from an external drive, especially if it's a SSD will be significantly faster.

    A disk external drive can be used with an iPad Pro?

    You can do it wirelessly with devices such as Wireless Connect from Sandisk stick.

    There are other devices that run a similar feature, but the Sandisk Connect is incredibly portable and usable also as a USB drive (even if it is a USB 2.0 device).  It is now available in capacities of 16 GB to 200 GB.

    I don't know of anyway to connect an iPad Pro on an external drive via a wired connection... Although it may be possible.

  • Why can't I use a virtual hard disk on a UDF file system?

    I have an external hard drive that has eSata and USB connection formatted in NTFS, where I have bootmgr and let me run windows native installers installations and windows on virtual hard drives with different software and different versions of Windows for testing purposes installed.

    I wanted to copy a VHD to another USB that is used to share files with other operating systems and is formatted with the UDF, who is reading and writing on all operating systems.

    Here it is: I can't use the VHD to a file directly from UDF system.

    I can understand that, because of the file system limits, cannot use extensible VHDs on UDF. But I opened a command line, type DISKPART, ' select vdisk file = [UDF disc]: \07-100-clean.vhd "and says it's a unsupportted action.

    Well... Make this hard drive virtual bootable since a UDF its imposible because it means modifing the bootloader, but:

  • How big can be a virtual HARD disk in ESXi 3.5?

    I just tried to create a virtual disk of 300 GB and had an error on the file being too large for the disk. I have 500 GB free in my data store, so that's not all.

    Is there a way to define ESXi to split the drive into 2GB pieces, or to not award the entire disk at once, as in VMWare Workstation?

    Thank you.

    Corey Crawford

    Not in this version of ESX.  What you need to do, is to clear all of the LUN, so you can blow the LUN and recreate with the block size you need, which should in this case be not 2 MB.

  • You can use pfile instead of spfile with automatic shared memory management

    I decided to use the pfile instead of spfile method, because you can make comments in the file pfile. This became very useful however I think that I might be giving up some things.

    I want to know if I can use Automatic Shared Memory Management with a pfile.

    Also you can make to change the pfile to the database file. Example:
    change the system {some parameter} scope =... I would like here to pfile.

    Is this possible. I don't want to have to keep switching back, and I don't want to lose what I put in the pfile file. I read a great article in Oracle magizine on best practices for Oracle and one of them was to not use the spfile. Now, I can't find the article.

    Dear friend
    feature managent automatic memory or dynamic SGA , can not be used when you
    use pfile as meathod initialization of the instance. To use the dynamic SGA feature you
    must use the spfile.
    As you know the current status or the size of the SGA is determined by the
    Parameter SGA_TARGET , and when you want to change the size of the SGA for instnace this setting
    must be updated dynamically without restarting the ORACLE SERVER.

    And as a pfile cannot be updated by the ORACLE SERVER, it must be changed manually.
    so you cannot use automatic memory management while you use startup pfile.

    I hope this helps...

  • Windows 2003 fails to start after the conversion from a virtual hard disk with vSphere Standalone Converter 4.0.1


    I've recently updated my host to vSphere 4. I've also upgraded to vSphere Converter 4.0.1. However, when I convert a Microsoft Windows 2003 virtual hard drive in vSphere, the resulting virtual machine does not start. He gets just after the BIOS screen, then turns black with only a white line in the upper left corner of the console.

    I tried the hot and cold conversions. I tried changing the different settings of default conversion. I tried to remove the source machine and recreate.

    It worked well under ESX3.5, so I wonder what I'm doing wrong on vSphere.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thank you.

    In v4 disk are in SCSI format only.

    Probably also the source was in the SCSI format... so v7 to the IDE format give you not configured in the bootloader of the disks.


  • You can use a single hard drive to store an image disk backup and restore for multiple computers?

    I have a couple of computers that I recently installed Win7 on. As soon as I do an install I always do a backup image is preparing for the worst. Do I need a separate hard drive for each computer that I do a backup or image can I put all my images on a hard drive backup? I already have two separate a HDs different images, but would like to have them all in one place. I already tried a straight copy of an image to HAND HD I would use like, but without success. Is this possible or do I really a backup image HD?

    Depends on what you use for backup.  in General, you need not to have a picture in HD.

    Personally, I like acronis true image home 2012 (free trial) because it is flexible, easy to use and workjs each time.

  • Run a virtual hard disk file in Virtual PC


    I recently got a Windows 7 PC to replace a Windows XP machine. However, while I still have access to anything whatsoever on the old PC that I maybe need even once, I did a .vhd on the old hard drive file.

    I can't open this vhd file, because I can't find a way to create a new virtual PC with which use this virtual hard disk.

    Is anyway to do this?

    Thank you

    Windows 7 can read files in VHD(Virtual Hard Disk) without VPC (Virtual PC).  You can make the VHD file be seen as a hard drive on the new PC. Here's how to do it.

    Attach the VHD file:
    1. right click on 'My Computer' and click on 'manage '.
    2. go in "Disk management" under "Storage" on the left side.
    3. click on the 'Action' menu on the top and click on "attach VHD.
    4 locate the hard drive file virtual you want to open, you can also make the drive read only just in case you accidentally change something.  Then click on 'OK '.
    5. you should see your virtual hard drive in "My Computer"
    Detach the VHD file:
    1. go in disk management as described in steps 1 and 2 as I explained earlier.
    2. on the bottom half of the window, find the hard drive virtual you want to detach.
    3 click on the "disk #" and click on "remove VHD.
    Good luck. God bless you. :)
  • Read the last sector of the virtual hard disk


    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium VM inside VMWare Workstation image. I want to access the last sector of this Virtual Hard Drive. However, I do not within Windows 7 itself.

    Instead, I want to start this virtual system using a bootable Livecd. To this end, I can create an ISO using the Windows XP Installation CD and Bart PE Builder.

    Now my question is, how do I boot under VmWare Workstation Livecd Bootable using Bart PE created so that I can access the virtual hard disk.

    And also, once I started the new system, I want to read this last sector of the virtual hard disk. This is for testing purposes. I know, it could be done on a running system as well however, I want to be able to do this in VmWare Workstation.

    I searched the net for a solution. I came across the Disk Explorer utility, which is available here:

    In my view, this will allow me to read the last sector and thus copy. It is however an expensive software. They have even a plugin developed to work with BartPE, which is available online here:

    But we need to provide the license key in the .inf for this file to work.

    In any case, I know how to prepare the Windows Bootable Live CD using BartPE.

    You can try to temporarily adjust the Type of guest OS Linux or edit the .vmx to have these parameters/values or temporarily remove the USB controller.

    usb:0.deviceType = "mouse"
    usb:0.present = "FALSE"
